TSG has published many books and booklets over the years and continues to release more of Torkom’s creative works. Our books are available in print formats and titles are being completed on Kindle/E-books.

Publications are broadly divided into five subject areas:

  1. Ethics and social responsibility: Building “right human relations” starts with having a sense of responsibility and a deep sense of the inherent human virtues that can be considered “goodwill.” An increasing sense of responsibility connects to one’s family, nation, planet, and the environment and enables the person to make the decisions about life that support the continuity and safekeeping of our planetary existence.
  2. Critical thinking: Learning to discern true independent thinking, free from mechanical thinking is the foundation of a healthy mind. To be free of outdated beliefs, emotions, others’ thinking and mass thinking develop better living conditions for the individual and society. Learning how thought affects our lives includes understanding the mechanisms of the mind, thoughts and chemistry, clear thinking and scientific meditation, memory and the development of intuition.
  3. Creativity and culture: Creativity can be defined as bringing illumination in any endeavor one chooses, in any of the seven fields of human endeavor: politically, artistically, scientifically, economically, educationally, and in the fields of communication and religion. The creative process strives to build a better future, a future that flowers hopes and expectations while conditioning the unfoldment of highest potentials. Culture is the result of experience; it is defined as an expression that reflects a certain level of creativity and beauty. Culture can be measured by the degree it uplifts and generates new visions for the future.
  4. Leadership and vision: Leadership qualities can be evoked in every human being in all fields of life. Leadership principles such as discipline, perseverance, health, inclusiveness, and continuous improvement relate to the core values of human experience. Leadership tools to increase a healthy self-image, success, the expansion of the heart and will power enhance our capacity to live our visions.
  5. Crises and challenges of life: We deal with crises and challenges of our personal and national and global life according to our inner strength and the power of our psychic development. Learning how to enhance our inner strengths will enable us to face any and all challenges of life. Learning about the role of karma and reincarnation will help us develop deeper understanding and tolerance toward others. Learning about safe and sane methods of spiritual development will make us thrive physically, mentally, and emotionally.
